Letter from The President: Famine in the North?

Fri, 16 Sep 2005 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents

I am writing to you from New York ?the Big Apple. Am here to interact with other world leaders and just have a good time. I know am not an important world leader ? I don?t have nuclear weapons and I don?t produce oil. So as far as this gathering is concerned, am quite insignificant. That?s why I have decided to enjoy this city as much as I can and meet many of the world?s most powerful leaders as well.
Since I arrived in New York, I?ve been eating good food and drinking good wine. But whenever I sit down to dine, I feel a sudden surge of guilt in my mind. It?s all because just a few days before I left Accra for New York, I read in the news that there was some sort of food crisis in the northern parts of Sikaman. It?s not fresh news anyway but it was shocking all the same.
